Modelling Tutankhamen. Elisabeth Daynes, an anthropological sculptor, constructs a model of the bust of Tutankhamen. The famous Egyptian pharaoh, a boy King, died in his late teens and remained buried in the Valley of Kings for over 3,300 years. He ruled from 1333-1324 BC in the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. He was discovered in November 1922 by British Egyptologist Howard Carter, who was excavating on behalf of his patron Lord Carnarvon. Although only of moderate historical significance, his almost completely intact tomb and solid gold funeral mask has made him famous in popular culture. Photographed at the Daynes Studio in Paris, France.
